As I was driving to the Pharmacy today, to collect my monthly packet of pills, potions and elixirs I glanced at the speedometer and noticed that this number had just appeared...

[Linked Image]

Yes, since July 2013, when the car was actually built, 44,000 miles.
It is only 7.5 years, so 5867 miles a year, which isn't that much!

BUT for a Morgan it is seen as highish mileage. Tarka continues feel almost as a new car, which says a lot about MMC's build quality!

I like that Peter, mine is 22 years old and has 35,384 miles on it and still feels nice and tight with lots of smiles.
She had 18,500 miles on her when I got her, every mile is to be savoured.

I've always said I aim to get to 100,000 miles before I'm too old to drive!
I love driving the Morgan more than any other car I've ever owned.
Enough said!

Possibly... I'm planning to use the Plus 8 to drive to Germany and Switzerland this year.

Life is too short to leave a low mileage car to the next owner.
